counter parts get. 14,000 jobs were opened and removed the ban. the military has until 2016 to be ready for this ban. a former military member herself said that the ban prevented her and her two sisters from doing all they wanted to do in the air force and it's a dw thing. >> even today, women are serving in combat. we all know that. it's just a matter of giving them that thank you. and that acknowledgment, that yes, they are serving in combat. and they are doing a great job. and we need them there. >> a senior staff attorney with the aclu women's right project in san francisco released the statement saying in part, they welcome the lifting of the ban with cautious optimism and hope that it will be lifted quickly
and fairly. the ban went in effect 1994 and if there's positions they want to prevent them from filling, special exemptions will be considered. >> last year, defense secretary panetta expanded combat positions to women in the army. today's action addresses the other military branches. the 1.4 million military active personnel, 14% are women. 292,000 women have served in combat zones. in both wars, 152 women have died from bat or noncombat causes. and nooip 58 have been wounded in action. >> it's back. rain returning to the bay area today. after 16 days of clear skies, we had a dreary grey day. we are looking at the camera outside. most of the showers fell in the north bay as we look at the camera in a second there. there you go. starting mid morning and then by
the afternoon, that rain started moving even further into the city. chief meteorologistist is tracking the wet weather and the cold temperatures. jeff, it's back. >> it is. and even a few drops. we had so much rain in november and december, this is still much needed here across the bay area as we can use every drop we can get. we had a strong start off to winter. the radar is showing a tap of sub tropical moisture coming up from the south. the entire state is shrouded in cloud cover right now. we will show you the more heavy activity in the north bay and showers across the east bay, including pleasantton, all of the road ways are wet. even if you do not have rain drops, it will be slick. heavier showers in other areas. overall rainfall totals
impressive over the past six hours with the nature of the sub tropical moisture, picking up a half inch at point reyes, and san francisco .11 of an inch. and temperatures monday, we had mid 70s at the coast line down to 56 in scotts valley. and so that winter chill is returning. we will have details on how long it will last coming up in the full forecast. >> you can get up to the minute weather details on our website, nbc bay and you can get your neighborhood forecast whenever you need it. all you need to do is search weather. >> oakland's mayor and top cop are on the defense, following a controversial vote to hire bill bratten. the big question is, now that he is hired, what will he propose as a solution to oakland's
growing problem with violent crime. we are life at citi hall with the story. >> well, good evening. i spoke by phone earlier today to his wife and she tells me that he is now in detroit working on a problem similar to the one he will be working on in oakla oakland. as for what he will suggest, we can is surmise that by looking at what he has done in other cities. home break ins and burglaries are something that is featured on oakland crime watch. the program was started last summer. >> i had a neighbor recently just accosted, was on hold for 20 minutes with 911 and was advised to go online, and fill out a report. >> he said that it's a daily occurrence. 30 burglaries and assaults per month. >> at least one per day. it's outrageous, us as tax
paying citizens should not have to accept. >> these are the low level crimes that the police do not focus on. and exactly the types of crimes he will want police to crack down on when he begins a contract next month advising the department. in other cities, he has worked under the broken window theory. that says, if less serious crimes are not dealt with the overall crime rate will go up. at a city council meeting that ended after 2:00 in the morning the council voted 7-1 to approve a 250,000 contract to hire him. his opponents seem more concerned with the support of a stop and frisk policy. they feel it will lead to racial profiling. >> you are bringing in somebody very controversial. it's going to be an up hill battle. >> late this afternoon, the council's decision was defended to bring him on board. >> he is neither the devil, nor
a savior, he is part of a team. >> this plan is not about him, it's about policy partnership. >> and the police chief went on to say that he will not be attending community meetings as part of his contract with the city. and he is expected to begin his consulting work in mid february. thanks for the update. they have sold a record number of devices but it's not please investors. apple's stock is falling. what is going and what do the apple faithful sni what is behind the big sell sthauf. >> when you are apple, the expectations are high. and when you meet the expectations it's not enough. not as far as investors are concerned. apple opening up the book for

here in the bay area, apple is not a product, it's a way of doing business. coming up tonight, day one for a startup founded by former apple employees. we will take you inside the launch in a look, that is tonight at 6:00, for now, we are reporting live in los gatos. >> okay. thanks so much, scott. while the 49ers hit the practice field what the players say they are not going to let happen when it comes to the big game. >> plus, he is speaking out, man tie tayou's admission to the fake girlfriend. >> it's not a matter of policy. it's personal. >> hillary clinton testified on what went wrong in benghazi. up next of course her pledge to diplomats working overseas.

>> for me, this is not just a matter of policy. it's personal. i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag draped caskets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers the sons and daughters, and the wives left alone to raise their children. >> an independent review found inadequate security, and leadership left the post vulnerable. the bay area family of the late ambassador reacts to the hearing. >> manti te'o and his so-called online girlfriend continues tonight. the woman that was the false identity was in an interview tonight and she said that she never heard of him and they are both a victim of a set up. te'o said that he briefly lied about his online girlfriend after discovering she does not
exist. but te'o mains that he had no parlt in creating that hoax. the family of junior seau have filed a lawsuit. it was found that he had chronic brain damage. the family is claiming that seau's suicide was the result of the brain disease that comes from severe blows to the head. they blame the nfl for not caring for the former players. >> turning to the 49 rs quest for super bowl six the players hit the field. and we hear about the promise they have made to themselves in the days leading up to the big game. >> absolutely. the 49ers had meetings yesterday, but today was the first practice here on the field here in the facility and under rainy skies they took to preparing for the 47th super bowl and while they were there, they were also more cameras and
reporters than players. but the players say that they will not let the distractions that come with going to the super bowl get in the way of what they want to accomplish. >> normal week. keep it as as normal as usual. you know, i think as far as preparation, getting your body ready to play and go through basically two work weeks and we will be ready to go. >> focusing on the task at hand and game planning for the game. it will be tough to keep the nerves down as we get down there, hopefully we can keep those together. we just go out there and play, at the end of the day. you know, the past is the past and the present is here. so, for us to win the game, you know, we have to go out there and compete, and go out and do our job and make plays. >> any distractions from this team would be a huge disappointment. we are going down as a business
trip and we will treat it as uch. after you can do whatever you want. go have a ball, we need to get the win. it will be huge for us. >> well, only four player on the team have been to a super bowl, so exactly how big those distractions can get, especially when the team travels to new orleans is largely unknown. but jim harbaugh tackles the unknown by being prepared. considering his brother is the head coach of the opposing team and they come from the same coaching tree that is more motivation for the team to keep their mind on the task at hand. >> and stay with us for continuing coverage of the 49ers quest for their sixth super bowl trophy. we will have more journalists on the ground in new orleans than any other local station. you can see the reports air and on line at nbc bay area doik. it's updated around the clock and we have a special page dedicated to the niners. there you find more analysis and
fan photos and interviews. >> well, we had a good run, i think 16 days is what jeff said, clear skies, but the rain is back. >> yeah, i know, it's really a much welcomed rain. we need it here as we go through the next couple of weeks. take a look at the satellite radar picture, we have it in the bay area and also of course, plenty of cloud cover. as we zoom in here, what you will find is as we put a loop on thrks it is moving from the south to the north. next on tap, will be the south bay, with showers tracking across gilroy, and eventually moving to nor began hill and then up to san jose as we go through the next 30 to 45 minutes and more areas of rainfall up in santa rosa and for the coast line. that is the nature of what we will find tonight is basically scattered rainfall. the sub tropical moisture has a way of tweaking that forecast enough that it's really not going to be too widespread. as far as the rain goes, it will
be much needed. november and december, we had so much in san francisco, with the huge storms, listen.61" but as we heard -- 11.61." current temperatures are dropping with upper 40s up to the north bay, 48 in novado and 50s in livermore. let's go to the live hd sky camera network. you need the jacket. all of the haze sitting across the screen, that is the poor air quality we have had the past couple of weeks and it's right from as well. as we look at san francisco, but this area of rainfall that we are dealing with, that is pushing all of that out. look at the stormy shot in san francisco tonight, down in the city. >> let's get you back to the weather boards and what we will find as we head through the next two days is this cold front pushing to the east. still pulling up the moisture as we go through tonight and in
fact, it will pull up a weaker system for friday to keep the chance of showers for the forecast. as we head through thursday and friday, it will be off and on, with temperatures in the 50s. rain time line, has moderate areas of rainfall as we head throughout 10:00, and tomorrow moshing, we will have a few stray spotty showers in the mix. by the afternoon hours on thursday, we will get the sunshine coming back across the bay area for an awesome afternoon. we will off the morning again with milder conditions. mid to upper 40s. with the cloud cover. 45 in napa. and 43 in concord, and 45 in the valley. and for tomorrow, sun by the afternoon, air quality improving. temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s. one of the warmer spots will be the south bay and it will be cooler in the east bay, on your three-day forecast. we get sun and dryer weather by
thursday afternoon and chance of showers for returns on friday, saturday and sunday. not any kind of major tomorrow systems, just seeing the areas of disturbances passing right on by the bay area and then we get more sunshine coming back for monday, tuesday and wednesday of next week. so again, just a few showers lingering into tomorrow morning then we get sun for your afternoon on thursday. >> sounds good. thank you. jeff. >> sure. >> a big scare near at&t park, what police fwound at a construction site that made them top traffic.
